Wannabe model Rosie Webster is to undergo fresh kidnap trauma after murderer John Stape (Graeme Hawley) returns to the Street later this year and kidnaps Rosie as his life spirals further out of control.
Viewers saw the man fake his own death on the ITV1 soap in May and his wife Fiz Stape (Jennie McAlpine) is currently awaiting trial for the crimes committed by her husband. When John returns later this year, he plans to keep a low profile but after Rosie spots him, he's forced to snatch her to keep her quiet.
A source told The Sun: ''John has been known for his murders before but he now becomes a serial kidnapper as well. He snatches Rosie after it looks like she is going to let on he is back." John previously kidnapped Rosie in 2008 after they had an affair.
Graeme's on-screen wife Jennie previously spoke about John getting what is coming to him saying: ''In good soap tradition, the baddie has to have their comeuppance - and he hasn't! It definitely feels unfinished." The scenes will air later this year.
